With today's product picks, each day will feel like a day in the beach

To make this look work, interior designer Kimi Manuel shares a tip: “If you want to use natural fibers and textiles, do so sparingly as small accents like throw pillows. You can also use abaca as a wall or ceiling treatment. Just make sure to apply it strategically for a more contemporary look.”
